OSHA 3095 Electrical Standards as a SUPERVISOR or Worker do you know it!

OSHA Electrical Standards and the hazards associated with electrical installations and equipment. Course topics include single- and three-phase systems, cord- and plug-connected and fixed equipment, grounding, ground fault circuit interrupters, and safety-related work practices. Emphasis is placed on electrical hazard recognition and OSHA Standards, policies, and procedures and applicable portions of the National Electrical Code (NEC).

As site supervisor you need to have the ability to understand the severity of electrical current on the human body, recognize and evaluate actual and potential electrical hazards and reference the applicable OSHA Standard, , determine hazard abatement measures, and understand the proper use of electrical testing equipment.

* Detect electrical hazards, determine which OSHA standards apply, and achieve the appropriate abatement

* Properly use safety electrical test equipment

* Understand the effects of electrical current on the human body with respect to voltage, current path, and the duration of exposure

Identify and value OSHA electrical standards

* Understand how the National Electrical Code ties into OSHA’s electrical standard

* Electrical fundamentals

* Grounding requirements

* Over-current protection

* Single-and three-phase systems

* Electrical requirements for portable equipment

* Electrical requirements for fixed equipment

* Ground fault circuit interrupters

* Hazardous locations

* Electrical safety-related work practices

* Dielectric personal protective equipment

* Temporary wiring

* Portable generators

* Branch circuits
